Source – Three days a week during the season he will make the commute from his San Diego home to the Chargers’ Costa Mesa facility. It’s a trek many know too well – and dread.
Rivers will do it in a different, more efficient manner.
Essentially, his mode of transportation is a mobile man cave with the seats like those in a first class airplane set side-by-side in the back facing forward, plenty of room for a 6-foot-5 quarterback to fully recline while watching film on the 40-inch television screen separating the front seat and rear cabin. There is satellite TV, WiFi and a small refrigerator Rivers would rather you call a cooler.
For upwards of $200,000 (plus a driver’s salary), anyone can make the freeway melt away.
This is the purview of CEOs and agents and directors and the kind of lawyers who charge $1,000 an hour.
Phillip Rivers has 34 kids so I’m surprised he can afford this. If this sweet ride helps Rivers go 8 and 8 again, then I’m all for it as long as he can dazzle all 13 of their fans on opening day.
